Since the dawn of our democracy, politicians have manipulated the outcomes of elections through a technique that poses a threat not just to Democrats or Republicans, but to Democracy as a whole. In 2003, fifty-three Democratic Representatives fled Texas to prevent the redrawing of state district lines. Republicans not only dispatched state troopers, but also misled the Department of Homeland Security to enlist their help with the chase. It was the latest battle in a war that has raged between the political parties for decades, in which both have used race and redistricting to manipulate elections. One-Eyed Man Films offers Crossed Lines, the definitive feature-length theatrical documentary on the hidden history of our country's redistricting wars.
